This post has been playing in my head for a while now. It has just recently taken on a new sense of urgency in addressing it, plus I have had the opportunity to speak with an expert on the subject. Thank you, Evan Katz, “The Anger Guy.”
Evan left this comment under the post after it was published. So, today, April 8, 2013, I'm copyong/pasting it just as he wrote it. Men, you need to read this:

Wow...its great to hear my message so accurately communicated. I'm humbled and privileged tio help people with the issue that imprisoned me for much of my life. It took my being a catalyst to my fathers death to mk me want to change. Guys, you have to want it. Needing to change isn't enough. Ask yourself...Do I want to be right or do I want to be happy? Do I want compliance or respect? Anger gets compliance (it shuts us up). Do I really believe life revolves around me? It doesn't...whether we've got cancer or not. So the next time u justify that your life sucks because of cancer or whatever, and u take your anger out at their expense, ask yourself: Hows my way working for me? For the angry man, being right is about as happy as it gets. Bravo Rev! And thanks for letting me be a part of something good. Blessings.."
